Release Date: 2005-12-10
Genre: Medical

Die therapeutische Beziehung - wichtig bei allen ärztlichen Tätigkeiten! In der praktischen Medizin ist die Bedeutung der Arzt-Patient-Beziehung schon lange erkannt. Sie ist das, was den erfahrenen Arzt ausmacht, worauf er baut. Je unerfahrener ein Arzt, desto eher die Gefahr, den Mangel an Erfahrung durch eine Vielzahl technischer Untersuchungen zu kompensieren. Genauso erliegen Patienten der "Faszination Technik", oft vertrauen sie der Technik mehr als den Ärzten. Die "sprechende" Medizin wird wieder in den Mittelpunkt rücken – allein schon aus ökonomischen Gründen. Schon innerhalb des Studiums wird den sozialen Kompetenzen wieder mehr Gewicht verliehen. Von einer vertrauensvollen therapeutischen Beziehung profitieren die Patienten und die Ärzte! Der Arzt und sein Patient – mehr als Diagnose, Analyse, Verordnung und Koordination!

God s Crucible Islam and the Making of Europe 570 1215

Author: David Levering Lewis
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
ISBN: 0393067904
Release Date: 2009-01-12
Genre: History

From the two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning author, God’s Crucible brings to life “a furiously complex age” (New York Times Book Review). Resonating as profoundly today as when it was first published to widespread critical acclaim a decade ago, God’s Crucible is a bold portrait of Islamic Spain and the birth of modern Europe from one of our greatest historians. David Levering Lewis’s narrative, filled with accounts of some of the most epic battles in world history, reveals how cosmopolitan, Muslim al-Andalus flourished—a beacon of cooperation and tolerance—while proto-Europe floundered in opposition to Islam, making virtues out of hereditary aristocracy, religious intolerance, perpetual war, and slavery. This masterful history begins with the fall of the Persian and Roman empires, followed by the rise of the prophet Muhammad and five centuries of engagement between the Muslim imperium and an emerging Europe. Essential and urgent, God’s Crucible underscores the importance of these early, world-altering events whose influence remains as current as today’s headlines.
